At Ulster and Ellenville collection sites are ONLY for pre-screened people who meet ALL of the following criteria:

Rite Aid COVID-19 Testing
Address: 351 Flatbush Avenue, Kingston
The Testing will operate under the following guidelines:

  • Testing will be free of charge to patients.
  • Testing is still by appointment only via www.riteaid.com
  • Rite Aid recently expanded its testing criteria. Testing will include all individuals over the age of 18 with or without symptoms.
  • A Rx from a doctor or health care provider will not be required.
  • Instead of using tents located in our parking lots like previously done, patients will arrive and come through the pharmacy drive through where they will receive a test kit through the drive through drawer. Testing will be completed in the confines of the patient’s car, sealed by the patient, and then handed back to the Rite Aid pharmacists through the drawer. Alternatively, some sites may use a drop box type kiosk for testing to be deposited and collected by Rite Aid personnel to minimize contact.
  • Rite Aid will be utilizing the self-swab nasal tests.
  • Clinical oversight for the COVID-19 testing program is provided by PWNHealth, a national clinician network that enables safe and easy access to diagnostic testing.
  • Rite Aid has partnered with Verily and will use its Baseline COVID-19 Program to provide screening, scheduling, and return of results to participants at Rite Aid testing sites.
  • Bio-Reference Labs will be doing the testing and reporting all results to NYDOH and County Health Departments.
  • At present, each site will have the ability to conduct 50 -100 tests per day.
